Thanks for this forum, I am hoping to gather some helpful information and ideas about growing American ginseng hydroponically.
Ordinarily in the woods it is a seven year endeavor minimum to simulate a quality wild root in a "woods grown" setting. However this is a plant that likes to give way to all sorts of destructive forces ( vermin, disease, poachers, etc.) so growing hydroponically seems the way to go, especially for an organic version.
I am a total hydroponic neophyte but the government of South Korea is investing in this endeavor as it seems logical, any ideas as to growing medium (ginseng likes slightly acidic) , how to prevent fungus, and cost outlays per 10 square feet of growing space???????
